The smallest sparrow

Take another good look at the face of this precious, innocent little angel. Being treated by a Canadian medic after eating gunpowder in his home. Gunpowder for roadside bombs used to kill said Canadian and other ISAF forces.

Remember to whom the family - likely working with the insurgents themselves - turned in their hour of need.

Remember this when asked why we fight.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
And yet not one of them shall fall to the ground without your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

- Matthew 10:29
